As I’ve said, I moved this winter, which means I couldn’t continue with my garden set-up from last year. I debated whether I should do the CSA that is popular around here (I’ve participated in the past) or start over with a new garden. Since one of the things that drew me to this place was the outdoor space, I decided to garden again.
I was up against a lot. The girls that lived here previously planted some stuff, but I have no idea what. I did see some oregano and mint, but they had started to completely take over the upper part of the back garden. So, it took me about three weeks and a bunch of blisters, but I was able to clear the back and the side areas. The big things I put in are a fig tree and a blueberry bush. I also put in various tomatoes, spicy peppers, zucchini, yellow squash, eggplants, radishes, carrots, beets (yellow and candy cane), onions, garlic, and carrots. I also then planted some lettuces and I got a planter with various herbs.
I then decided that I wanted my garden to be more sustainable, so I got a rain barrel and a composter. Hopefully I will have some good updates all season long.
